The largest mosque in Alexandria, Egypt looks like it was carved of creamy ivory.
The Abu al-Abbas al-Mursi Mosque has been a part of this city since 1775.
It is named in honor of a scholarly saint, upon whose tomb the mosque is built.
There have been several renovations, since its completion, to keep the mosque pristine.
The exterior of the tall minarets and domes are decorated with incredibly fine, intricate details.
Alterations were made to the mosque to allow a separate entrance for women to be able to worship within these holy walls.
